Worth every penny. Great people, great food, magnificent area. It's as close to 'real Alaska' as one can get in a few hours.

I cannot say enough about this tour. The views, people and the food were all phenomenal. There was nothing to complain about and I will definitely be doing it again when we go back to Alaska. The scenery was so breath taking. We had the chance to pick fresh, wild blueberries.

This was a very good Excursion on Princess. We had a good no rain day. It was a good boat trip from Skagway to Haines. The guides where good and explained almost every question. The ride down the trail was a little hairy. Keep your foot on the brake or close to it. Nice views every where. You really don't... More

We loved this tour. Definitely one of the top things to do while in Alaska. We took a ferry from Skagway to Haines, then met our tour guides - Ronnie and Sabrina. They took us to the base of the trail, where we hopped on our mules. The ride up and down the trail has amazing views, including steep drop... More

Me and my husband had a wonderful time on this adventure! Be booked thru our cruise line and found the price to be very reasonable. We took a ferry ride from Skagway to Haines where our tour guide met us. The 4x4s were pretty easy to drive and well maintained. Of course my husband loved driving but I made him... More

Spent the day on the trail while visiting Skagway via cruise ship. Nice ride from Skagway to Haines by ferry, then it was a great time with Takshanuk. Kids enjoyed the ride, the owner and guides were fun to be around. It is not a wild ride on the mules, it is a fun easy ride for all ages.

It was really fun driving up into the mountain on the trail and getting where there is no other way to get into that area and get those views. The guides, Angie and John, were informative and you feel safe being with them as the guides. It really is not for those with no adventure in them though. The machines... More

What fun was this!! We had a whole group of people hitting the trail the same time we did..... It was a caravan of fun!! We had 4 people in our Mule and all we did was laugh and say "Look at that... Look over there!" When we got to the lodge we took a short break and admired the... More

This was the best part of our whole trip. The little Kawaski Mules we drove were so powerful and made me feel very safe. The ride up was full of breathtaking scenery and the guides were very conscientious about our safety. On the way back we stopped for fresh cooked halibut, which was delicious. I would do this trip again... More
